Chaitra Navratri 2024 Day 3: Worship Maa Chandraghanta to Get Rid Of Your Problems

11 Jan, 2024 by Parita Soni

On the third day of Navratri, devotees worship the incarnation of Goddess Durga - Maa Chandraghanta Devi. It is believed that overpowering demons fear this goddess. A consort tiger is her vehicle, and she is the greatest provider of welfare and peace. Due to the hourglass-shaped half-moon on her brow, she is known as Devi Chandraghanta.

Devotees experience exquisite fragrances and sights of the spiritual realm through the Goddess' grace and occasionally hear a variety of noises. As a result, worshippers should be more cautious at these times since they develop confidence and fearlessness by worshiping this form of Maa Durga.

Maa Chandraghanta Story

The gods and asuras allegedly engaged in a long battle in antiquity, with Indra Dev ruling over the gods and Mahishasura over the asuras. Mahishasura triumphed in the conflict, defeated the gods, and claimed the throne of Indra Dev to rule over heaven. 

Concerned, the gods rushed to Brahma, Vishnu, and Mahesh (Tridev) for help. They explained that the demon Mahishasura had abducted Indra, Surya, Chandra, Vayu, and others and grabbed their authority before capturing the possession of heaven.

The gods said they could go nowhere in heaven as Mahishasura ruled over them. The Tridev became furious after hearing this, and their mouths started to release energy that mingled with the energy coming from their bodies.

The released energy started to grow in all the ten directions. Only then did a heavenly deity arrive. The mother received Chakra from Lord Vishnu, while the Goddess obtained Trishul from Lord Shankar. In the same way, other gods also offered their weapons to the mother. From Indra Dev, the Mata received an hour, while Surya dev gave a sharp sword and a lion to ride. The goddess in this avatar was named Maa Chandraghanta.

Mata was thus fully prepared for the encounter with Mahishasura. After witnessing his massive form, Mahishasura, the demon, sensed his time was approaching. As soon as Mahishasura called his army to attack the mother, other herds of demons became involved in the battle. Mata Chandraghanta immediately killed all of them. Devi not only killed Mahishasura in this war, but also destroyed many other demons.
